About Vivitar 1.4x

The Vivitar 1.4x Auto Focus Tele Converter for Nikon is an easy way to noticeably extend the reach (focal length) of compatible lenses. The 1.4x Tele Converter can be mounted between select lenses and the camera body to increase the focal length by the power of 1.4x. The new multi layer coating reduces flare and ghost, which is a common problem with digital cameras.

They also offer maximum photography magnification by 1.4 x, without any variation in the minimum focusing distance. Compact and lightweight, these teleconverters convert your lenses into longer focal-length lenses, so you don't have to do a lot of unnecessary footwork.

Auto focus only works with some lenses

By

from Seattle  -  Semi-pro Photographer

A little disappointed because it doesn't work with my main lenses: DA* 16-50 and Sigma 70-200 2.8 (HSM lenses just keep hunting and flashing) Somebody said don't use tele converter with wide angle lenses, but the auto focus works fine with the DA 18-250mm and FA 24-90mm and don't know why It doesn't work with my FA-100 2.8 (?!)

It Works on Auto Focus; K-5, and K10d

By

from Brandon, MS  -  Photo Enthusiast

Finally. It took a very old friend "Vivitar" two tries, but this on really works. I do not write reviews but thought this one needed writing. Less than $100.00, great value. Tight fit even on my very used K10d. Two Tamron and one Pentax lens. A little slow finding infinity and focusing first start, Fine after that.

Questions about this item:

john b  will this work with a nikon 5100 and a tamron 18-240 lense?
Andrew R  This teleconverter will mount to your D5100, however autofocus may not be functional depending on the lens.
john b  Thank you. John bauer
DAVID C  Will this work with my Nikon D7000 body coupled with a Nikon AFS 18-200 mm DX lens and a Nikon 70-300 mm ED lens? With the 18-200mm lens, will the lower lens glass crash into the teleconverter or will it clear it? Will both lenses autofocus in bright light? Will the vibration resistance still work? Are the optics sharp? Thank you for your answers.
Alfred T  David, I can address whether it will work well with the 70-300; yes it will work properly and the autofocus will work if there is enough light. I must say, that I found it to be severely lacking in image sharpness. I wanted to use it to extend the length of my 70-300 for wildlife photography, but was so disappointed with the image detail that I returned it for a refund. I can't say that I would recommend purchasing it.
DAVID C  Thank you Alfred. I ended up buying a Kenko 1.4 from Adorama and am pretty happy with it after one day's shooting with the Nikon 18-200 lens. There is some softness but Lightroom handled that fairly well. The great thing is able to take fairly wide angle shots also (about 25mm equivalent), which I can't with the Nikon 70-300 lens.
